Vee haff vays of making you SQUAWK.

That weird orange hair looks familiar, but I can't seem to place it.

He ain't no stool pigeon.

"I want to make America Grape again"

CBS clip cut the Donald's flavor out. It was aired on CBS This Morning and on the full show.

Go home Lebanon. You're drunk.

Here is a strange flight story, from the Times of Zambia.

A man was picked up by police in the Zambian capital, Lusaka, for wandering the streets in his underwear and smelling strongly of alcohol. He stated he was a powerful sorcerer who had just flown in from the north and fallen off his matchbox (that's what they use in southern Africa, not brooms). Though the police had their doubts, they did not like to charge him with sorcery. Though illegal, the public does not le such charges, they think it might tick off a real magician So they thought and asked him where he had flown from. They located the village, drew a line from there to where they found him, and found it went over a Zambian army post. He was charged with, on his own admission, violating government airspace.

CSI Lusaka.

Seeker, how do they sit on matchboxes? Wouldn't they be really small? Must be really easy to fall off.

I'm surprised we don't have dead squished naked sorcerers all over the place.

FredKey, I read this in the paper when I got off the plane. I read it through carefully three times to find the hoax. But it was a real story, and locals confirmed it was a plausible thing to happen.

Of course I wondered about the matchbox (among other things), but no info was available. I think you are not supposed to inquire into the affairs of really powerful sorcerers - just maybe offer them yet another drink.

The anti-Israel "Boycott-Divest-Sanction" movement is mad at the vulture because it didn't boycott carrion from the Jewish state.
